The guide to the best places in Stockholm to eat Christmas julbord

There's always a certain amount of stress involved in the run up to Christmas, but here in Stockholm you'll also find plenty of Christmas spirit, Christmas markets and perhaps most importantly; Christmas food and traditional Swedish "julbord" - buffet tables laden with Christmas food. Lots of restaurants in Stockholm lay out fantastic julbord - some classic, some slightly more modern and alternative. Some serve Janssons Temptation on linen tablecloths, while others serve up lobster and oysters. Naturally, you'll also find plenty of places serving a completely vegetarian julbord. Follow our guide to Stockholm's best julbord, and don't leave booking until the last minute - reservations for the best places flood in thick and fast from early autumn.
